Shared E-Scooters on Campus
Starting March 31, 2023 the City of Eugene is launching a one-year shared e-scooter pilot program. The e-scooters will be provided by Superpedestrian and operated by local non-profit Cascadia Mobility. The university has agreements with the city and with Superpedestrian to participate in the pilot program.
What you need to know:
- Do ride on designated bicycle routes.
- Do park only in designated parking areas.
- Do wear a helmet.
- Do not ride on the sidewalk.
Designated Parking Area at Kalapuya Ilihi
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to wear a helmet while on an e-scooter?
Yes. Oregon Law requires helmets for all e-scooter riders, regardless of age.
Where are e-scooters allowed on campus?
As with other personal mobility devices, e-scooters are allowed on designated bicycle routes. Within the 'parking limited' boundary shown on the map above, e-scooters must be parked in a designated parking area.
What is the university doing to ensure safety on campus?
The Eugene E-Scooter pilot has a number of built in safety features, including:
- An in-app safety orientation for all new users covering operating rules in Eugene.
- A lower speed limit for all riders on their first ride.
- Slow-ride and No-Ride zones that automatically slow or stop the scooter in congested or sensitive areas.
On campus, users will be required to end their ride in a designated parking area and take a picture of the parked scooter.
Who do I contact if there is a problem?
E-scooters provided by Superpedestrian automatically detect most mechanical issues, including e-scooters that are tipped over. If you see an e-scooter that is parked outside of a designated area or has a mechanical issue, use the Superpedestrian support email or phone number. Issues reported in this way will route directly into the local operator's work-ticket system.
